In short, this album is awesome! Linda Perry, of 4 Non Blondes fame, apparently wrote these songs about a woman who broke her heart. Each song tells a story about a specific stage of their relationship. Not only are they well written and straight from the heart, they rock! And sound awesome!! Linda's vocals are well recorded and Tony Tornay's drumming is top notch. Musically and lyrically this is an inspiration and I would highly recommend it!

I bought this CD on a whim. The cover art caught my eye, to be honest.

I do love music and not just anything being produced is considered "musical", in my mind.

I have a collection of over 3500 CD's and vinyl.
This one was a total surprise.
This was one of those finds that do not come around often.

I am really impressed with the ability of the artist to evoke emotion in the listener. It is like a great Poet who can make you shed a tear just by reading the words on a page.
I was moved by the raw, real, passion and angst of the songs.
It was obvious to me (long before reading of the inspiration behind the lyrics)that this artist had been hurt and was still suffering.

I highly recommend this CD.
Even if you are not aware of the historical impact the singer/writer has had you will be amazed.
This CD would stand on it's own merit, if needed.

Thank you, Thank you for recording again Linda. Anyone who knows anything about Linda Perry will NOT need my review before they buy this CD or anything else by her. She is a musical GENIUS!

I've had the good fortune of interviewing Linda Perry several times and she is one of the most dedicated and passionate musicians I know. We've spoken at length about DDR and 8 Songs, and Perry really poured her heart, soul, blood, sweat, and tears into this new album.

One of the things that most surprised her about 8 Songs is that her voice is completely different on each song (which was unplanned), and that she and Tony recorded the album dirty and rough. (She didn't want glossy and polished.) And boy, did she succeed.

8 Songs is more than just a concept album; it's a musical and artistic evolution of a brilliant songwriter and musician. Perry is 100% dedicated to her craft and it shows. What else can I say? She's a f***ing genius.

If you love music, especially rock music, buy this album. Tell your friends to buy this album. It's the beginning of a whole new musical trajectory for Ms. Perry.

Stellar side project from Linda Perry (former 4 Non Blondes) and Tony Tornay (Fatso Jetson). An album with an actual theme! Charts a relationship from the excitement of attraction to the bitter end, Linda's voice has never sounded better, her songwriting is intensely personal, swinging from raunchy fun to heart-breaking. This is why she's one of the most sought-after songwriters and producers out there. Steer clear if you are offended by swearing, gayness, or the truth.

If you are even looking at this album listing you know all about Linda Perry and are likely a long time follower. She is a legend...and you will not be disappointed by this album - it is pure & raw Linda. I love it - so glad she is still performing.

I always found it heartbreaking that Linda has not put out more solo work. In Flight remains one of the top musical offerings of all time in my opinion years after its initial release. For those of you that are looking for soaring vocals, this is not the record for you. Oddly it took me a listen or two to get it but once I did it stuck. This is a rock record. Pure and simple as it should be.

Linda Perry still shows why is one of the best song writers in the business. Definitely looking forward to the next DDR record.
